Sophie was recently rescued from the Kenton County Animal Shelter in Ft. Mitchell, Kentucky where she had been for a couple of months. Sophie is a beautiful white and brown Pointer mix and is about two years old. She gave birth in the shelter to an unbelievable litter of fifteen pups! The shelter was doing a good job of taking care of Sophie and they really wanted someone to give her the freedom and TLC she deserves. Some animal rescuers and friends of Save-an-Animal had been following Sophie's case and made us aware of the situation.
We are told that all fifteen pups were homed but that no one wanted to adopt "momma". That is a sad story that repeats itself in shelters over and over. It is so unfair that the mother has to give up her pups and then stay in a cage where no dog should have to live. It is pretty amazing that after all that Sophie has been through she is still a very sweet and fun dog. She is energetic like a young Pointer should be. She craves affection but can also lay quietly by your feet for long periods of time.
Sophie is an avid ball player and tail wagger. Sophie has been spayed, is heart-worm negative, house trained and is up-to-date on all her shots. She gets along well with our grandchildren, our Siberian Husky, and all of the other dogs around the neighborhood. She has not been tested around cats.
Save-an-Animal will only transfer animals to an environment that is safe, loving, and fully aware of their needs. If you want Sophie or know of someone who can give her the love she deserves contact us via email. It is extremely difficult for us to give away such a wonderful pet but in order to save others from kill shelters we have to keep homing them to make room for new ones.
